Sheffield Utd keeper Ramsdale has message for Man Utd's Henderson after England call

Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale offered a sympathetic message to Dean Henderson after replacing the Manchester United keeper in England's Euros squad.

Henderson was forced to withdraw from Gareth Southgate's England squad at the European Championship with a hip injury, having been on the bench for the Three Lions' 1-0 triumph against Croatia on Sunday.

"While I'm delighted to be joining back up with England, my immediate thoughts are with Deano as I know how much it meant to him to be involved," Ramsdale posted to social media.

"I have now been given the honour and to be involved in a major tournament is what dreams are made of. This is a special moment for me and my family."

UEFA's Euro 2020 rules allow for teams to replace goalkeepers on medical grounds throughout the tournament.
